Challenge Overview

In this four-week practice-based series, you'll be introduced to the fundamentals of Jivamukti Yoga, and you'll explore the basics of standing poses, backbends, forward bends, and vinyasa.  Sign up and get one 60-minute class a week, delivered directly to you via email. The first three classes each emphasize a particular asana-related focus, and the last class ties together all of the work you've done for an integrative experience. Along the way, Jessica offers a nuanced approach to pose breakdowns and to stepping up or stepping down the difficulty level of oft-challenging poses (so that anyone, no matter their experience, can benefit). Whether you want to explore a new style of yoga, deepen your existing knowledge, or start yoga from scratch (beginners are welcome!), this program is for you.  Ready to begin?

Section 1
  • This is the first class of a four-part series based on the Jivamukti fundamentals curriculum and is ideal for beginner yogis or anyone who wants to refine their understanding of familiar poses. You'll start with a classic Jivamukti warm-up that you can do before any yoga practice. Then you'll explore a sequence that places special emphasis on common standing poses, including tadasana (mountain pose), trikonasana (triangle pose), virabhadrasana (warrior I), and vrksasana (tree pose). The experience concludes with savasana (corpse pose), where Jessica first shows you how to get nice and comfortable...
Section 2
  • This is the second part of a four-part series based on the Jivamukti fundamentals curriculum. You'll begin this class with a classic Jivamukti warm-up, and after that, explore a balanced sequence that places special emphasis on forward bends such as paschimottanasana (western stretch pose), janu sirsasana (head to knee pose), and agnistambhasana (fire log pose). Class concludes with a guided relaxation.
Section 3
  • This is the third part of a four-part series based on the Jivamukti fundamentals curriculum. Class begins with a brief Jivamukti warm-up. After that, you'll explore a dynamic sequence that includes a breakdown of common backbends, such as supta virasana (reclined hero pose), salabhasana (locust pose), dhanurasana(bow pose), setu bandha sarvangasana (bridge pose), and urdhvadhanurasana (wheel pose). While many of these are \"big\" backbends, you'll take them one step at a time and use plenty of props to support the process. To wrap up the experience, you'll relax in savasana (corpse pose).
Section 4
  • This is the final class of a four-part series based on the Jivamukti fundamentals curriculum. Class begins with a classic Jivamukti warm-up. After that, Jessica introduces the components of a standard vinyasa, providing pose and transition breakdowns and options for stepping the intensity of your flow up or down. In the latter half of the class, you'll take a close look at two powerful inversions: headstand and shoulderstand. This practice ties together everything that you've explored so far (and helps you take it further). To conclude, Jessica guides you through a seated meditation.
